...mail to our friends...

Trust YOU are keeping well. Thanks for all you do.

Today, our continuous appreciation goes to everyone of you reading this mail. Thanks for staying in touch and thank you for impacting lives of young people through us. It's been awesome having you as friend, sponsor, donor and youth mentor!  You have been amazing! For example, today, we remember vividly some 2 years back, when a friend, showed up to mentor and sponsor the education programs of some 2 girls. And, till date, he still mentors, and consistently pay them a monthly stipend of 10,000 each! 

To all Child Sponsors and Donors, thank you for rekindling hope of these young people. It means so much to all of us. Thank you, greatly! To our Amiable Volunteer Mentors, you are priceless. Thanks for your time and knowledge shared.
